Food Poem by gajanan mishra


Food food food
All are here for food
All evolve from food
All act for food
All think about food.

All know no food
No existence.

Food come from rain
Rain ensues from sacrifice
Sacrifice rooted
In prescribed action
Prescribed action
Originate from knowledge
Knowledge proceed from you
You my dear not destructible.

So long as you are there
Food is there
You are all pervading
You are infinite
I the finite
Long for you
Through the food
Supplied to me
Only by you
And the food
Itself you.

    Food is the very basic instinct of man and animals. Without food life cannot exist. But one thing that we should remember is that we should 'eat to live' rather than 'live to eat.' Beautiful composition with profound depths. (Report) Reply
